Hi Lynn,
I do some needlelace.  Mostly Reticella and other types of drawn
work.  What is it that your friend wants to know?  I rely heavily on
historical patterns from the 16th and 17th centuries for the work I do.  I
am not in the SCA, as many of the HNW'ers are, but I am interested in
creating "accurate" exemplars.  I don't usually think of it as tedious, but
the set up can be, I suppose.

Let me know if I can be of any help.
